Wheee! Roller coasters! Are you a thrill seeker? Our kids are!
Our population is 54% free or reduced price lunch kids coming from a very diverse community of ethnicity and economic stature.
Nearly all kids can relate to roller coasters; be it the local carnival that comes to town or trips to Disney World. Offering books about things kids like will encourage their reading.
There is a magic to weightlessness, G-forces, and other forces of energy. When riding an amusement park ride, the last thing on the mind is what science is taking place. In enjoyable, interesting books, the students will learn about force and motion without intending to.
Your donation to this project will put science books into our kids hands.
The beauty of it is that they won't think of the books as science books! The only way to really understand a concept, in any subject, is for the topic to be relevant. You can't get much more relevant than amusement parks!
